Descriptions
  1. Type: full

    This dataset is of traits measured from ~600 juvenile coral reef damselfish (species: Acanthochromis polyacanthus) after differing lengths of exposure from hatching to heatwave conditions. The traits measured were escape performance, standard length, weight, crititcal thermal maximum, and sex.

    Clarifying some of the column headers in the dataset:

    Fish: unique fish ID

    UqRep: unique fish tank ID

    Treatment: C = 108 days exposure to control temperatures post hatching and 3d = 3 days, 7d = 7 days, 30d = 30 days, H = 108 days exposure to +2C post hatching

    Family: four different family lines

    TestingT: performance/testing temperature of escape response trials in Celsius

    W: wet weight in g

    SL: standard length in mm

    StartT: starting temperature for critical thermal maximum trials in Celsius

    CTM: critical thermal maximum in Celsius

    The rest of the columns pertain to the escape performance traits.

    Video: unique escape performance trial ID

    Stimdist: distance from stimulus on impact in mm

    Stimdirect: orientation from stimulus on impact in degrees

    StimdirectR: orientation from stimulus on impact in radian

    LatencyMS: time from stimulus impact until response in milliseconds

    DuratMS: duration of C-start escape response in milliseconds

    Dist: distance travelled of C-start escape response in mm

    VeloMS: mean speed of C-start escape response in m s-1

    MaxVeloMS: maximum speed of C-start escape response in m s-1

    EndDirect: direction after C-start escape response in degrees

    EndDirectR: direction after C-start escape response in radian
